The slight retractions to the seat and double hourglass legs mark this as a traditional chair made by the Dan people of Liberia. The moon-sliver backrest and low seat helped women to comfortably work through domestic tasks, using the floor as their workspace. That use has left this chair with richly polished wear patterns that complement its sculptural form.
